英文自然發音的重要

Submitted by Jenny on Sat, 05/29/2010 - 10:07

為什麼現在有很多人提倡用自然發音來學英文發音?有什麼好處?


英文的自然發音是叫做Phonics. 它是一種字母拼讀法。英文本身是一種拼音的字母,所以只要看著字母就可以發音了,不像中文,需要另一套符號才能夠來發音。因此,我們可以直接用字母當音標,又方便又簡單。英文自然發音的聲音和字母之間存在一定的對應關係。雖然,有的時候,一個字母有兩種發音,可是一般來說,是有規則性的。


當你學會了自然發音,其中的好處是當你在念文章時,即使你不認識這個單字,也可以輕易的念出單字來,並可依據前後文,來猜出這個單字的意思。這對讀英文文章有相當大的幫助。


台灣公視的網站有英文自然發音的對照。要常念才會記得喔。

Good use of a comma

Submitted by Jenny on Sat, 05/22/2010 - 14:16

It's hunting season in some parts of the world. Recently, there is a poster that says "It's that time again - go out and shoot people! :)" - this got me to think. This sentence is to tell you to go out and shoot people. So, people, watch out, there will be people just go out and start shooting on the street!


How would this be fixed? A comma would have fixed the problem. It would be "It's that time again - go out and shoot, people! :)". This would make so much more sense.
